Although I don't have one to build, I think it would be a great idea.  Between the Golfs, Beetle, New Beetles, Karman Ghias, Micro Buses, Type 2 Transporters, and Delivery Vans, I think it could be a cool CBP concept.

A Photobucket or Fotki account works best.  Just copy and paste the IMG link into the reply and presto!  Instant pics!

Hey Hawaii; How long do we have to build and does it have to have a VW engine or any engine as long as it resembles a VW. Terry

lets end this at the end of the year, and every volkswagen body style is allowed. it doesnt have to be powered by a vw, so let your imaginations run wild.

This is a very cool idea for a CBP. I'll be watching this.

,Re: Volkswagen CBP,Wow perfect timing. Can i have a go at this? I just picked up the hasegawa 23 window microbus coincidentally. My 2nd model since getting back into the hobby after a 10+ year hiatus. I am a vw head who owns a 56 oval window beetle and i am in the process of replacing the pan and heaterchannels. I am happy to have stumbled upon this forum. I have big plans for some future builds narrowed beam, porsche wheels, disc brakes, porsche motors etc etc and the list goes on. I am gonna grab the tamiya 66 1300 beetle kit next. I wish there was a split or oval window kit available, if there is ive yet to find it! i have seen a picture of a hasegawa 23 window kit box with hinged doors and full interior anyone know how rare these are? ,vw porsche oval microbus transporter ,,, Post
